Just because you and your partner love each other does not mean that you don’t have to continue to work to keep you relationship fresh and exciting. The day-to-day grind can take its toll on relationships, causing us to focus on other priorities. We may also begin to take each other for granted over time and forget to cherish each other like we did when we first met.
Enter Valentine’s Day. The holiday provides a great excuse to revitalize a relationship. If you’re puzzling over what to get your significant other this Valentine’s Day, consider the following gift ideas to rekindle the flame of desire and attraction in your partnership:
- Food – Food is a universal language. “Speak” to your partner by taking her to her favorite restaurant. Be sure to make reservations early as Valentine’s Day dining fills up quickly. You can also present her with a basket containing her favorite cheeses, preserves, kitchen gadgets, and other food-related indulgences.
- Alcohol – Consider taking your loved one to the wine store and letting her pick her favorite bottle. You can enjoy a fun date and get her a gift she’ll love at the same time.
- Straight cash – You don’t have to go crazy trying to guess what your significant other wants for Valentine’s Day. Give the gift of cash or a gift certificate. It takes the pressure off of you and allows her to have just what she wants.
- Special efforts – Is there anything that your Valentine has mentioned that they truly want? An outfit they saw in a store window? A cell phone accessory? The gift will mean even more when she realizes that you take note of the little things that interest her.
- Sentiments from the heart – The best gifts don’t need to cost money. Consider writing your Valentine a special poem or a heartfelt note to relay how much you respect her and enjoy her company.
- Muscles – Are you making strides to get into optimal shape this year with a trim, toned body? Your work can send a strong message that you are committed to looking your best—a message that your partner will notice.
Candy and roses are great, but don’t settle for the ordinary this year. Show your Valentine your love with a gift from the heart.
